Greetings Statalist,

I have a collegue who teaches dynamic and thermodynamic meteorology at Ohio State University. His operating system is Micro$oft Win2000 (maybe Win98). He has been thinking about using Powerpoint to teach his classes, but his lectures involve deriving lots of equations and he does not have a good equation editor. This equation editor would also be used to generate equations in research articles for publication in meteorology journals.
When you say he "doesn't have a good equation editor" is he including the freebie version of mathtype that comes with Microsoft Office? It generally isn't installed by default; you have to explicitly select it during installation, and so a lot of people do not even realize it is there. I like it very much myself and I imagine the pro version Marcello mentions is even better. It may be that he just doesn't or won't like mathtype; but he should definitely check it out first if he doesn't already know that he has it.

Zillions of equations created with mathtype can be found in my handouts at
